Who needs the official photo when you have Ryan Thompson?
Bearing frigid temperatures and snow flurries, the Hawthorne Racecourse photographer on Sunday night captured one of the sport’s rarities — a triple dead heat — from the angle we’re opposite to seeing.
Using a remote camera under the rail, his shot captured Picky Picky Valor, Keep the Cash and Skyway Jaylo hitting the wire together in the 10th race of a harness racing card.
First, a traditional look:
@RyanFromChicago started race 10 w/ pic from turf, ran to set up this camera on ground at wire then crossed track to catch finish. Effort rewarded with this shot of triple dead heat @ClubHawthorne."
